The Future Of Jurgen Klopp Remains In Doubt As Manchester United And Tottenham Close In

Posted by

Barcelona make up the trio of clubs interested in the Dortmund man.

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is clearly a much coveted figure as Barcelona, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all show interest in the German.

The Red Devils have been linked with the 46-year-old for some time and with David Moyes having had a disappointing first season in charge at Old Trafford, the Mirror reports the Premier League champions are lining up Klopp as a replacement.

Whilst Louis van Gaal has also been linked with the potential post at United, it’s understood that the Dortmund boss is the No.1 choice having led the club to successive Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 and the Champions League final last year.

Yet despite this success Klopp is constantly having to deal with rivals Bayern Munich poaching his best players – with Mario Goetze having made the £31.5m move last summer and Robert Lewandowski also heading to the Allianz Arena at the end of this term.

However, Tottenham have also emerged as candidates to tempt the head coach to England as they look for a successor to Tim Sherwood.

Chairman Danil Levy has been looking for a replacement for the Englishman ever since Sherwood took over from Andre Villas-Boas in December 2013 and whilst van Gaal and Frank de Boer have been linked with the post, the Sun says Klopp is their priority.

Spurs could well have the advantage with it expected that United will give Moyes a little more time to prove himself, whereas they will be wanting to find a new manager as soon as the season ends.

Yet if they are competing with Barca for Klopp they could be fighting a losing battle, as Tuttosport reports that Gerardo Martino is likely to be sacked after a disappointing first term at the Nou Camp – with the Catalans out of the Champions League and behind in the race for La Liga.

It would also be an attractive prospect to appoint the German if he could bring along current Dortmund star Marco Reus as well.
